The purpose of this study is to observe the background characteristics of migrants and the effects of socio-demographic characteristics of migrants as well as to fit some mathematical models to migrant population associated with age and age at marriage. For this, the data is acquired from Bogra pourusova of Bogra district, Bangladesh by purposive sampling technique. Chi-square test, logistic regression analysis, smoothing technique, polynomial model, Cross Validation Predictive Power (CVPP) and F-test are employed to fulfill the aforementioned objectives. It is identified that age, educational qualification, occupation (before migration), income (before migration), type of family (before migration) significantly effect on causes of migration.
